Ever wondered how soft a mammoth might be? Well, now you can have your chance to find out with a package of real mammoth hair!
The mammoth is the Ice Age ancestor to the modern elephant. The largest species could grow up to 14 feet tall. Both male and female had ivory tusks that were often found fossilized and exported hundreds of years ago throughout Europe and Asia. Mammoths had a thicker undercoat of hair about 1 inch long under an outer layer of coarser hair that could grow up to 20 inches long. Early humans would draw mammoths on the walls of caves, being some of the earliest forms of art.
